Look who hails Kohli as the ‘greatest batsman of his generation’

Internet Desk: Indian captain Virat Kohli perhaps got the best compliments coming from one of the contemporary batsman. Kohli, who notched up his 20th test ton, became the first captain to score consecutive hundreds in all three test matches of the series. The Delhi batsman completed his hundred in just 110 balls, much to the joy of the home crowd. It was the first test hundred for Kohli in Kotla.

The twitter was flooded with appreciation of Virat’s prolific run scoring spree in recent times. Leading the list of cricketers who acknowledged Virat’s tremendous batting was none other than his former Royal Challenger teammate Kevin Pietersen. The former English batsman dubbed the Indian captain as the greatest batsman of his generation.

Former England skipper Michael Vaughan too joined Pietersen in admitting that the Indian captain is ‘the best player in the world’.

Virat became the fourth quickest cricketer to reach 5000 Test runs. While legendary Sunil Gavaskar had taken just 95 innings to reach the 5000-run mark, Kohli has taken 105 innings. Former India opener Virender Sehwag reached the milestone in 98 innings while master blaster Sachin Tendulkar achieved it in 103 innings.
